Want silky smooth skin after hair removal? Here’s how to go about it
When we talk about open pores and exfoliation, our mind quickly directs to those annoying blackheads, whiteheads and pimples caused by clogged pores. Did you know just like our face our whole body is covered with pores(hair follicles) and requires exfoliation in order to drive away the dirt, oil and pollution clogging them. When this amalgamation of excess oil, dirt and grime along with the dead skin cells block the pores on the skin, bacterial infestation begins resulting in skin inflammation, causing pimples and acne breakouts. This is the reason why people start developing body acne ‘alias’ bacne which appears in the form of tiny red bumps, whiteheads and blackheads. The most common spottings for these spots are in the upper half of the body - shoulders and back due to the presence of sebaceous glands (sebum).
During the process of hair removal, some of the hair coming out of those hair follicles tends to grow back in the direction of the skin leading to ingrown hair. Not only these ruin the skin’s texture but can be painful and cause hyperpigmentation. This dark appearance and inflamed follicles gives off the illusion of a strawberry, hence its name - strawberry legs.
The predisposition of excess fat under the skin also makes the appearance of cellulite more perceptible.
As the cause of these issues - hair removal is inevitable, it becomes imperative to take preventative measures. Here comes dry brushing - the body ritual to tackle all your body acne and ingrown hair related issues. Let us talk about its multiple benefits plus steps to a proper dry brushing routine.
